Schuster T. et al.: P1014 – Performance of the BÜHLMANN Quantum Blue® Adalimumab rapid test dedicated for therapeutic drug monitoring of serum adalimumab trough levels
Conclusions: “The BÜHLMANN Quantum Blue® Adalimumab lateral flow test enables the quantitative determination of adalimumab trough level in serum with time to result of only 15 minutes. The developed test allows to measure adalimumab over a wide range, well beyond the therapeutic window. Hence, it represents a valuable tool for the clinician to assess the adalimumab trough level.”
Magro F. et al.: P1022 Clinical perspective on drug monitoring with an infliximab rapid quantification assay
Conclusion: “Our results show that the rapid IFX assessment system is a reliable alternative to the time-consuming ELISAs in patients in the maintenance phase of IFX operating a threshold of 3 ug/ml.”
El-Safi G. et al. P1675: Cost effectiveness of IBDoc faecal calprotectin as a surrogate marker of mucosal healing post induction of biological agents in inflammatory bowel disease.
Conclusion: “This study demonstrates a significant cost-effectiveness of using IBDoc faecal calprotectin post induction of anti-TNF therapy, as well as reducing the waiting time for both clinic visits and colonoscopy.”
Walsh A. et al, P1641: TrueColours ulcerative colitis (TCUC): Will patients with UC complete digital questionnaires in Real-Time?
Conclusion: “Patients with UC will collect digital data in real-time, with good adherence to symptom, QoL, outcome questionnaires and FCal home testing. Usability was classified as ‘superior’ but further improvements are possible. Larger studies are required to determine cost-effectiveness.”
Puolanne M. et al: P0371 – Self-monitoring of the colonic inflammatory bowel disease by a rapid home based feacal calprotectin test and a symptom questionnaire.
Conclusion: “The self-monitoring of IBD activity with a rapid FC home test provides an option for individualized treatment for increasing amount of IBD patients…“
